The latest group of young professionals to benefit from the NCAA's Ethnic Minorities and Women's Internship Grant recently started their new roles at 22 schools and conferences in Divisions II and III. 

The grant is designed to provide financial assistance to Division II and III member schools and conferences that are committed to enhancing ethnic minority and gender representation in entry-level athletics administrative positions. In positions approved for grant funding, schools and conferences are encouraged to include exposure to a variety of the following areas: strategic planning, budget management, fundraising, campus and NCAA compliance, sport oversight, student-athlete welfare issues and initiatives, academics, diversity and inclusion initiatives, and staff oversight/management.

As part of the grant, interns and their supervisor spent two days in July taking part in personal and professional development programming led by the NCAA's leadership development department. In addition to providing funds for other professional development opportunities, the Ethnic Minorities and Women's Internship Grant includes funding to attend an NCAA Convention, where its recipients come together to network, learn and grow in their shared mission to provide the best student-athlete experience on their campuses. (Read more about the grant's impact from last year's cohort.)
